4 Hero's Marc Mac and Dego have a long history with the breakbeat. They know it so well that they decided to write a book. They call it Two Pages. Beginning with a more modern take on postbop ("Loveless") and delving deep into subjects of electric and symphonic jazz ("Third Stream"), soul ("Star Chasers"), and '70s funk, "Page One" is a historical biography of contemporary black music. Starting where they left off, "Page Two" continues the saga, telling tales of funky breakbeats with elements of hip-hop ("The Action"), electro, drum & bass intelligence ("Pegasus 51"), tech-step ("We Who Are Not Others"), and some future stuff ("Mother Solar, Part 1") that hasn't even been given a name yet. Don't worry, we won't spoil the ending. --Daniel Shumate
Here they lay bare their oft-mentioned affection for dance's yesteryears in full, with d&b consigned to the background for the first half of this two-hour epic. Soul? Yup. Funk? Of course. Jazz? Yes, even that. Well a lot of that, actually. And yet, despite quaverings of the "Cosmic Tree" and "Golden Age Of Life" from a gaggle of guest vocalists, those customary "niiice" jibes aren't always warranted. --

There are many memorable tracks on two pages. Tracks 3, 4, 8, 16 & 17 are intrumental. Start with those. I'm surprised Dego hasn't been sommoned for any movie soundtracks. He is a master DJ. The music varies between orchestral jazz and gospel and atmospheric electronic with intricate drum n bass patterns weaving throughout. Truly, a work of art.
I heard the extended version of Pegasus 51 off the japenese import recently and I look forward to hearing the rest soon. It may be wise just to buy the two pages import instead, if you can find a copy.
